Squarespace Site in China

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I am planing to use Squarespace for a client by creating a new account. First, the client will mainly operate in China. Due to Chinese internet restrictions, is there a problem with Squarespace functionality wise eg. e-commerce, loading time, general access etc.

Thank you for clarifying and/or solutions! :D

Hi @eaglescout,

Great question! I've worked with a number of clients who face similar issues where their Squarespace sites (like most sites) load incredibly slow in China, and largely are "broken". Take a look at the Chinafy 'bolt-on' . (www.chinafy.com). 

The bolt on is able to address:

1. Speed: Taking sites from 50+ to about 6-8 seconds on average. 

2. Compatibility Issues: These affect functionality (from APIs, to Images, to Transaction calls etc.). Chinafy resolves these on a mostly 'automated' basis. 

Full disclosure: This is one product of the companies I work for (among others).

Here are some resources. you can check out. Give me a shout if you'd like me to walk through them.

Does Squarespace work in China?

> Test your site (or another Squarespace site) as it currently loads in China.
